Chateau Argadens Blanc – white Bordeaux has been about as fashionable as my wardrobe in recent years which is a crying shame as there are some wonderful wines around. This Sauvignon/Semillon blend, underpinned with some light, toasty oak is a peaches and cream delight.
Cellar Selection Chardonnay, Sileni Estate – Kiwi Chard with citrus and nectarine flavours backed up with sweet oak and lees stirred complexity.
The Emily – still one of my favourite rosés, a blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir this is almost (but not quite) bone-dry with delightful, red fruit characters and a zesty acidity on the finish.
Malbec Roble, Los Haroldos - classic, rich, intensely fruity Malbec from high altitude vineyards. Ripe fruit, smoke and chocolate on the nose with fleshy blackberry fruit.
Chateau Argadens, Bordeaux Superieur – no it’s not a misprint, this is the red counterpart to the wine listed above. A Merlot dominated blend full of dark fruits and subtle, oaky tones.
Touriga Nacional, Terra d’Alter – jaw-droppingly good red from Alentejano in southern Portugal; Touriga Nacional is one of the principle grapes used in Port production and this is full of those rich, spicy flavours but (of course) without the fortification and sweetness.
